The "G" is home for cricket and Aussie Rules Football. No trip to Melbourne is complete without a trip to this marvellous arena. Head there for a match, a tour or visit the Sporting Hall of Fame.

Awesome night watching the swans go down to the hawks. 73000 people and the grounds handles the crowds and their movements excellently. So close to great amenities and walkable from the city centre. Great venue!

Flew to Melbourne to watch the swans play, the venue was remarkable and easy to get around, public transport took us to the front of the venue, a bit pricey on the food and drinks, overall awesome night.

The seat ticketing was a bit baffling. A great experience going there. Had previously been to Grand Final. A must for all footy followers. Food and drink services are very good for patrons.
